About Microdialysis Probes
A microdialysis probe has a semi-permeable membrane. Our probes have a 220 µm outer diameter. The probe inlet connects to a syringe pump which continuously perfuses through the probe. As the perfusate travels through the probe, analytes cross the membrane and travel out the probe outlet into sample vials on a fraction collector or to a sample loop of an analytical system via a narrow tubing. This valuable tool enables sampling of rather low molecular weight compounds from within the extracellular space of tissues.
In the particular case of the brain and spinal cord, neurotransmitters are released to the extracellular space. This measurement has more meaning as informational transmitting than total tissue content. The collected extracellular fluid is used to determine the chemical composition with sub-nanomolar sensitivity and detect small changes due to manipulation, or related to a physiological/behavioral change. The microdialysis implanted animals behave close to normal conditions.
